Cymbidium Orchid: Flower Buds Emerge!

Flower buds have emerged from the first flower spike of the season in my makeshift shade garden. Each of these flower buds will eventually become gorgeous flowers. Two weeks ago (see my previous post), the flower spike was just starting to get longer.  Relatively speaking, it’s growing rather fast. One great thing about cymbidium orchids is that, if provided basic care (for me, that means watering it twice a week to keep the soil moist but not soggy), once the flowers actually form, they stay fresh and beautiful in their container for months! I don’t remove my flower spikes to place in vases, though I have friends who do. They’re just such a lovely sight in their containers when I come home, a great way to add color in your garden during the autumn and winter!
